Opposition chief says Netanyahu overplayed Lebanon border operation

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned U.N. Secretary General António Guterres on Wednesday about the terrorist group Hezbollah digging underground tunnels to infiltrate and attack Israel, according to the prime minister's office.

Yuval Rotem, director-general of the Israeli foreign affairs ministry, said Tuesday the operation is critical to Israel's security because Hezbollah is backed by Iran.

The diplomat also called on the UN Security Council to "take all measures necessary to confront this systematic campaign being waged by Israel and Israel's ongoing violations of Lebanese sovereignty, which are a threat to the security and stability of the entire region".

He said that at the end of the operation, the tunnels "will no longer exist and will no longer be effective".

Meanwhile, Hezbollah has published photos and videos of the Israeli work being carried out on the border, as seen from the Lebanese side of the border, signaling to the Israeli forces that it has them within its sights.

Hezbollah receives the majority of its funding from Iran, supplementing Iranian aid with a vast global criminal network that traffics in illegal narcotics and money laundering. "It's now clear that Iran used its windfall from the Obama Iran nuclear deal to arm Hezbollah for an all-out war against Israel, and that the United States must do more to undo the damage of that deal. Sen".

One possible answer? A Senior Military official who asked to remain unnamed said it took many years for the IDF to develop the technology to detect the suspected Hezbollah tunnel burrowed in limestone rocks and cliffs.

Azaladin is known to be a commander for the Hezbollah observation unit on the border with Israel and a commander in the tunnel unit, i24news reported.

Livni told the Kan public broadcaster that while she and the rest of the opposition welcomed the army's operation to find and destroy the alleged tunnels, it "must be kept in proportion".

Asked about European allies, particularly Germany and France, who are plotting methods to skirt the US sanctions, Hook said the United States is uniquely placed to enforce the new sanctions.

Recent reports have surfaced that Israel is seeking diplomatic ties with Bahrain; the Jerusalem Post reported in late November that Israeli government sources confirmed that Israel and Bahrain were communicating in an attempt establish official diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The same day as the phone messages, IDF Arabic spokesperson on Twitter wrote a warning to Kfar Kila residents to leave the area, claiming they were living in a "ticking time bomb".

"Today, we can say that we are aware of what Hezbollah is doing".
